Hans customizes a perfect massage treatment by blending several techniques into one healing and relaxing experience. Enjoy the soothing interconnected strokes of Swedish massage designed to relax the muscle combined with deep tissue to release muscle tension, trigger point therapy to smooth and remove muscle knots, and stretching and mobilization to lengthen the muscles while promoting a range of motion and circulation.

Herman is absolutely amazing. I just had my first session with him and I already feel so much relief. I had a baby recently and have been hesitant to get bodywork in case things just didn't feel right, I wish I booked with him sooner! He worked every area I needed and without a ton of talk, which I like. I like deep work but also can't stand it when therapists keep working in the same area for too long. He flowed from the places I needed more work on to other sites, then would come back. My massage felt way longer than the 90 minutes we scheduled. Can't wait for our next session. Do yourself a favor and take care of your body!! You will be so glad you did.

Perfect massage from start for finish. The massage space is easy to find and very comfortable. As for the massage, it's exactly what I needed; long strokes and with trigger points. He clearly knows what he is doing and loves doing it.
